Do you have that one thing in your craft room that you have had for ages and just didn’t know what to do with it? I sure did!!! This cheese board was a find in a thrift shop about 12 years ago… yes 12 years ago!!!! So when I was asked to join up with a team of blogging pals do join in with a Monthly Craft De-Stash Challenge I was in like Flynn! One because I would be able to make something of this Cheese Board and secondly reduce some of the goodies I have in my craft room! This is a simple project that can be made in one afternoon!
Farmhouse Repurposed Cheese Board Tray
- Thrifted Cheeseboard or something similar
- 4 Wooden drawer pulls
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement and Ash
- Fusion Beeswax
- Glue Gun
- E6000 Glue
- 120 grit sandpaper
- Number Stencil
- Decor Art Lamp Black Paint
Step 1– Paint the drawer pulls in Ash. Let dry and apply a second coat.
Handy Hint: Use the screw from the drawer pulls to make it easier to paint them and stop you from getting paint all over your fingers.
Step 2 – Give the cheese board front and back 2 coats of Fusions Casement. Letting the first coat dry completely.
Step 3 – Using your sandpaper distress the drawer pulls and the cheeseboard.
Step 4 – Stencil a number of your choice onto the top of the cheese board and distress lightly. Wax to seal.
Step 5 – Cut a piece of jute long enough to be wrapped around the handles glueing down each end.
Step 6 – Glue the drawer pulls to the base of the cheeseboard.
And there you have a nice farmhouse footed tray to add to your decor made in one afternoon! Be sure to check out all of the Craft De-Stash projects from my blogging pals below!
